Stocks and Shares

stock market graph business forex trading investment and crisis money

Stocks and Shares is a very delicate topics when we talk about investments. I believe that since the start of the financial recession in 2007/2008 at least 70-80% of the investors in the Stock Market lost a lot of their money, I know and I have heard of Beginner Investors who have lost even everything (their money plus what they borrowed from their family and friends)!

It's a very difficult and risky time to invest in the stock market at the moment: Crude Oil fell from $150 per barrel in 2008 to $32 per Barrel in the beginning of 2016! Which is a drop of almost 500%. Even Gold that has always been considered for years a safe Heaven has dropped from $2,000 per ounce in 2011 to $1,200 per ounce in the beginning of 2016 (40% drop in 5 years!). I believe that the only people who made some money in the Stock Market during recession time are the Investors who mostly playing short!
